AKB Meerschaum: Carved Woven Basket Churchwarden (Selver) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-5420
A style of meerschaum I have yet to see, this Churchwarden from Selver of AKB looks to have taken inspiration from the Cherrywood shape, though the most interesting aspect of its construction stems from the carving along its stummel. The entirety of the porous mineral is crafted to resemble a wicker basket, with interlocking cords across its surface appearing as if they have been woven together. The area near the heel on either side of the bowl has a similar style of carving, though these more resemble Celtic knots. The bowl cants forward languidly, giving the piece a gentle dynamism that keeps the composition exciting far beyond the first look.-John McElheny
